HP ZE5185 Clock Problem

This laptop seems to work perfectly except for the time. It only keeps the time when the laptop is on. It wont update with the windows XP time server, I have to set it manually.
I have changed the CMOS battery with no luck. The old CMOS battery was a rechargeable Maxell ML1220 at 3 volts and it still had most of its charge.
Does someone know if I am using the correct voltage for the battery or is there something else I am missing?

Replacing the battery should do it. As long as you've got 2.7-3.3v coming from the battery you should be alright. These rechargeable can indeed run out of juice though and it's also possible that some part of the mechanism or firmware that works to keep it charged could be having problems.

None of that would explain why Windows' own time update fails though. What kind of error does it give when you attempt to update the time? Or does it update and shift out of whack immediately?

MY WINDOWS 7 LAPTOP WONT RECOGNISE PRINT SERVER


Please note that all old devices drivers have upto windows xp or 2003 server files becuase now only windows 7 has been launched in the market. So don't worry you can download print server drivers from the site .

If your print server is USB connected , the windows 7 will say found new hardware after that it will ask you update drivers, there you can click on have disk and locate the driver files where you have kept and clickon windows 2000 or xp from here you can select the driver and install it. Defently your print server will work.

If this answer is helpful ,pls rate it.

Poweredge 1800 server


Hey,

I looked over the spesifications for the poweredge 1800 servers, go ahead, it will work perfectly but there is one problem in the windows XP setup, you will need to insert / load SCSI or SATA drivers for the hard drive With a floppy disk, or if you don't have a floppy drive your going to need to create a custom windows xp setup cd and add the drivers into it so it can start the SCSI or SATA hard drive and finish the install. without the drivers it might not find the hard drive.

Aside from that I don't see any other problems. You should be able to get the drivers, and everything ese from dell site
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/

Actually I looked over the dell downloads, I see only windows 2000 on the list with windows server 2003, and 2008 and linux distributions.

This could be a 2nd problem, drivers might not be avaialble, or work with xp, but we might be able to get it to work.


So two problems, SCSI or SATA drivers in windows xp / windows 2000 setup

2nd problem is in windows xp drivers, you could try windows 2003's drivers and 2000's and see if they work, if not, then we would have to look for drivers ourselfs from the internet.

So xp might cause headache but we might get it working, windows 2000 seems to be supported perfectly.

Let me know how the project goes
Thanks,
Ekse

Windows Vista home + Windows XP Professional Networking issue


Make sure domain settings to your server are correct on the notebook computer. These settings are located in the control panel of the system setting.

Whats the operating system of your server?

Make sure the firewall in windows security is turned off too. Sometimes that thing sneaks up on you.

I haven't used the home edition of Vista but another reason why it might not be working is because it isn't the business version. Microsoft might have added extra security to prevent the home version from connecting to a server. I know we use the business version of Vista at work and it is working that way on the intranet server without a problem.

I would check with Microsofts website on that.
